    Often, a person will post a sincere message about which he/she is emotionally sensitive. Skillful trolls know that an easy way to upset the person is to falsely claim that they are a "troll." In forums where most users are similar to each other, outsiders may be perceived as trolls simply because they do not fit into the social norms of that group.

    So, it seems unamerican behaviour is denounced as trolling?

    Unamerican?

    To define that, you need to define what is *american*.

    You want to be careful with your definitions unless you WANT to get banned.

    OK, maybe a bit far reaching.

    Maybe the question should be: "Who is the owner of this site?"

    Mr. KnowItAll seems to be the censor.

    Another question I have: Is he censoring because of legal requirements or personal preferences?

    On order or because he's the owner?

    Or: If you know the owner you can adapt your opinion to the preferences of the owner if you want to taste his wine.

    >> On order or because he's the owner?

    I'd have thought owning the site would give me some privileges.

    Yes, it does. So why not say outright you are the owner? It would make things easier.
